First Breakfast Ride of 2009

My first real ride of 2009. I did a quick jaunt to the store and a check-ride around the neighborhood on a bike I was servicing, but those don't count. My bike club did their Saturday breakfast ride this morning.

Back to the ride.

The reward for climbing a steep hill.

Breakfast time!

That's a lot of money right there, boy!

Breakfast starts coming.

The ride back.

Including to and from my house to the rally point, I think it was about 30-35 miles.

Let me live vicariously thru you...what was the temperature out?

It was in the mid-60s which is pretty funny when you see the guy putting his leg warmers on. By mid-afternoon it was up to the 80s. The next day it was in the low 40s with a howling wind out of the north. I actually started out riding my bike to church, then turned around and got the car. Today it barely got above freezing and it drizzled all day. If it hadn't been so warm Saturday the roads would have been sheets of ice today.

Nice.. What are all the matching jerseys? Is there a team?

Doohickie said...

They're just club jerseys from the club I ride with.
